What should we do about splitting bark on a chitalpa tree?

We have a chitalpa tree that is 3 years old. This is the first summer that only half of the tree has bloomed. The other half appears to be green under the skin, however the bark is splitting. Should we cut the part down that is not blooming? We don’t want the half that is good to be affected by this.

    Splitting bark is a common problem with Chitalpa trees, one that experts believe is caused by a lack of water. However, the tree has already walled off that part of itself and begun healing, so you shouldn’t have to worry too much.

    I hope this helped!
